WE send this book out into the college world with 
the hope that it may bring the greatest happi- 
ness to the greatest number of people. Therefore, we 
beg you, take no offence at what you find within these 
pages, as offence is in no wise intended. Neither will 
you be wearied, we hope, by our attempts at wit, — 
'tis a poor thing, but our own. Indeed, to please all 
who peruse this book has been our constant endeavor. 



Wallace Manahan Turner 

in appreciation of his unfailing geniality 
and constant considerateness 

The Class of 1 923 
respectfully dedicates this book 

To the Class of 1923 

The Class of 192,3 is soon to leave the college bearing on each and every 
member the "hall-mark" of Simmons quality. 

A certain famous manufactory of fine silverware puts on each article that it 
makes a stamp that guarantees origin and quality. Whether that article be small 
or large, plain or ornate, a luxury or a necessity, the stamp stands for just one 
quality — the best. For years its familiar outlines have meant honest value jealous- 
ly maintained. It is a precious possession. 

The Simmons stamp is just as tangible, just as definite, just as valuable; and 
every year it means a little more. Every class of technically trained women that 
has graduated has spread a little farther abroad the knowledge of what the stamp 
of Simmons training means. When the members of the Class of 1923 have found 
their places in the world, more people are going to know that "Simmons Trained" 
means — in the most desirable situations or in just plain "jobs" — one standard of 
fineness that means the best there is in thoroughness, honesty, dependability. 

Now my word to you especially and individually, for all Simmons classes have 
been thorough, honest, dependable. Live these splendid qualities but in your own 
way — each of you. Be the finest woman you can, but not in the way of anybody 
else. Think things out for yourself. Hunt for the truth, and having found it, 
don't be afraid of it. Live that truth fearlessly and in your own way. Your influ- 
ence in the world will be measured not by your salary, nor by your skill, but by 
your personality. 

Don't be a person, be a Personality. 


In grateful and loving memory of 
B. Marion Brown 

Instructor in and Assistant Professor of Chemistry, 

July 31, 1884— July 17, 1922 

Dr. Brown was to us an inspiring teacher and a 
helpful friend. As one who was "ready for service 
and worthy of trust" she is ever before us. We feel a 
special sense of kinship with her since she was of our 
own alumnae, and a sense of pride in her scholarship, 
for she was the first Simmons alumna to receive the 
degree of Doctor of Philosophy. But more than 
these, we glory in the memory of a great teacher.

Barbara Abbot the secretarial school lacks charm for Barbara. Anyhow, she deserted 
it Junior vear, for the card-eatalogue-course. She has not disclosed any reason for 
this course' of action, but we surmise that anyone who can get her own themes done 
lone before the required date would find enjoyment in the pages of those of others 
\nd besides, had she argued with one of the ever-present employers found for secretarial 
students as she does with Ellacoya. her job would have been daily endangered.

With that complexion (guaranteed by Dame Nature not to come out in the wash 
and tho=e black eves, is it any wonder people have asked if Edith were French, or 
Scotch' or can vou wonder at her numerous telephone calls? 1 ou cannot, and still 
hold vour place as an honest human being. Besides answering the telephone Edith s 
favorite pastime is taking shorthand notes. Imagine that, oh secretarial Classmates, 
if vou can — we cannot! And yet 'tis true. No occasion (from Mic bhow to such 
august assemblies as Convocation and Baccalaureate l is too frivolous or too solemn ior 
Edith's snappy notebook and nimble pencil. We fear she spends many a midnight 
hour deciphering hieroglyphics.

"You'll find her on the golf links, or over picking mushrooms: and she won t be 
home for dinner, anyway, for she's on a diet!" ...... , 

Just then I hear a pounding up the stair, a clatter down the corridor, a roar of con- 
tagious merriment, and I turn to see a rapidly vanishing nose and feel a slap on the back 
as Anne yells "S'mee!"

Dorothy M. Allen 


When it comes to doing Dot's write-up, we feel our limitations keenly. You see 
we must say something. In fact, we want to say something very much indeed. But 
what to say? If we tell how kind she is (a very gentle hint is enough to set her a-wash- 
ing or a-mending for us), how sweet and gentle, we would make her blush, a thing she 
hates to do. On the other hand, the only faults we can seem to find with her are that 
she is very quiet indeed, and never speaks of her own accomplishments — not even when 
she gets an A, or its equivalent in M. G. H. terms.

Edna were swamped in a desert island, the next load of shipwrecked humans would 
belong to the masculine gender. Therefore we prophesy that Edna's secretarial career 
will be a brief but brilliant and exciting one.

H eaps of jolliest friendship, given with a merry smile — 
I nterest in the big things that make every life worth while — 
L ots of books, and pictures, and flowers gay and bright —

A bility and activeness, a combination rare —

A string of A's, one big bluff, and a propensity for arguing about nothing at all —

England was the bit of the West she brought with her. And then, of course, she

Evelyn comes from way down east and she sure is a credit to little Lubec. As an 
A-puIler she takes the cake, and as for talking, when she once starts, there's no stopping 
her. But next year Maine will be the better for one good dietitian and we will have 
only the memory of a faithful friend and a never-failing supply of sardine sandwiches.

But unawares, the conversation will trend eventually toward cars, men (particularly 
Yale men), the events of the preceding evening, and the studying she hasn't touched.

charge of one fur coat for the next hour.

Lucy Bagg 

Whenever an athletic animal, from antelope to jumping-jack is mentioned, we are 
at once put in mind of Lucy Bagg. She is unparalleled in the field— (or should one say 
"atmosphere?") of jumping — broad, high or any other variety. Once under way, she 
doesn't stop till she has won, which is characteristic of Lucy. She even makes it a point 
to go a little beyond the winning line — just for good measure. We won't be surprised, 
ever, to hear that she's broken the high jump record for women. Or, why limit it to 
women, in these days of equal opportunities?

For four years Arlene has been trying to convince us that the Canal Zone is not an 
uncivilized country, and that its inhabitants do not hang from trees by their tails. 
Just as though romances and fairy stories such as she can weave are inspired by ordi- 
nary experiences! Does sojourning 'neath swaying palms influence everyone's tem- 
perament similarly? If we could be sure on this point, we too might risk our lives 
among the cannibals of the South, just to imitate Arlene.

Thcora — How would you write "ecclesiastical" in shorthand?

isn't or you would have known it. 

Yes, Theora would have known the correct form if it had been in the list of word- 
signs assigned to the class for study. Theora's classmates all envy her that seemingly 
unlimited source of knowledge, and the ability to apply this knowledge at the right time 
and in just the right way. The funniest part of it is that Theora is so unconscious of 
these envious eyes that are watching her, and, in fact, won't be convinced that she is to 
be envied.

There are some folks whom you like, and like very much, but you can never tell

are your friends. All the same, we are glad that there are some people whom we have 
very definite reasons for liking. Mil Barton is one. Every-one knows why she has so 
many friends. She is too jolly, too much of a good sport, for it to be otherwise. And, 
best of all, she isn't afraid of hard work.

"Variety is the spice of life," they say. Surely it is the spice of Dixie's. Who 
else has moved from Manilla to New Orleans to New London, and still claims to be 
Southern? Who else has such a repetoire of songs? 

Dixie is a true Southern girl, according to all the established rules of fiction writers. 
She can sing a song in Japanese without knowing the English version of it; her flirta- 
tions are too delightful to be painful. Will we ever forget Dixie's lengthy telephone 
calls, or her coy "this is so sudden," when Longwood House "showers" her? If you 
think you're in danger of getting the Bellingers mixed, Dixie is the one with the natural- 
ly curly hair, the R. S. V. P. look, and the most words. If you ask us "What's the 
matter with Dixie?", we'll say, "She's all right!"

It wasn't until Senior year that Esther drew a room where she could supervise 
everything and everybody so effectively with so little effort, — not that she didn't 
manage to before. Have you ever attempted to stave the tide of her ceaseless, query- 
ing chatter? But it's really a pleasure to answer Esther's questions, because you know 
her curiosity is born simply of the eagerness to learn, and not miss a thing in the learn- 
ing. We know she is a smart kid, because we've been to school with her for four years, 
but whoever else meets her, will know it too, by her bright, sparkling, snappy eyes!

suspect her — 'til later— much too later! ! 

We don't exactly like to call Eleanor "quiet." She's displayed too much pep, of 
her own particular variety, for that word to be exactly applicable. But she has a certain 
quiet way about her, for which we like her all the better.

she uses them! How does she do it? Don't ask us, ask her. We only wish we knew —

But the gay life has lost its charms, and Bogie has stepped out of the social whirl. And

internes lose their hearts in vain.

the missing two cents. Not so, — for Clara is efficient. 

If ever Clara gets tired of balancing herself on the proverbial high stool, she'll have 
no difficulty in finding certain less routine jobs. For instance, who could pose more 
successfully than our Clara as the "after" in any add picturing "before and after apply- 
ing" any old kind of skin beautifyer.

Edith went to Florida for her Sophomore Year and when she got back, you-all

either. A soriety pin, a red-headed devotee, and a line that would rope in anything, 
from a high school student to the president of the First National. And all this she 
manages most effectively without even neglecting any of those brain breaking "con- 
densed" courses.

complete authority on "Textiles, Their Quality and Value." No scientist could order 
her life more precisely than does this New England devotee of Simmons Household Ec.

exhausting materials and ideas by the long kilometer. And when it comes to accurate 
observation of the very latest styles — verily, she hath no equal.

Little things like classes have never bothered Harriet. A week or two of them,

Despite Irma's appearance of utter respectability, and despite the fact that she is

heart. For conviction, just glance at the list of previous schools under her name. 

However, now that she has come to us she has, apparently, subdued her wander- 
lust, and is as faithful as can be in her attendance at IS Somerset Street. Another indi- 
cation of her domesticity is that inevitable luncheon set — just to pass the time on the 
trains and during recesses, we suppose!

therein lies half the battle. 

We suppose that to an old New Yorker like Catherine, Boston seems rather tame. 
But there again we have to give her credit, for she spares us all the comparisons she 
can — and still remain a loyal daughter of her old home town.

"Cashie" can even find a humorous side to dieting. Her optimistic disposition is 
a great "life saver" for herself, and also many times, for her fellow students. (Memo-

has those of '23. There is nothing spectacular about her, no one quality to which we

to analyze — we recognize it without knowing why, yet of this we are sure — there could 
be no truer representative of our class than she.

"Christie" has quite a reputation for being calm and self-possessed at all times, 
but we want to assure you that there are times when she gets really thrilled and excited;

the mail that girl gets,- — packages, specials, and letters by the score, many of them bear- 
ing the same familiar handwriting. However, there's a reason for it all, which you will 
readily understand if you catch a glimpse of the stunning Navy ring on her left hand.

of nervous tension, reeled out perfect copies for her on the very day before THE Day. 
All these indications of un-ruffable temperament permit our hearty recommendation.

wing-top chair, and a window hung with snowy curtains, through which peek some red 
geraniums. There will be a cat curled up on the rug, and a little silk bag, with some 
crocheting, hanging from the arm of the chair. And in the chair will be Avis herself — 
we know she will. But before that, she will have made her name famous by reforming

There's a sleepy little village nestled among the towering Vermont hills that's

decidedly unusual, for its cause will be a woman — no less a woman indeed than our 
Cookie. And Cookie will make herself and her town famous, either by establishing an 
entirely new and unheard of catalogueing system, or by marrying no less important a 
personage than the coming President of the United States.

Another important requisite of the perfect secretary has Helen — a sense of humour. 
In her most digniQed moments, her eyes keep their irrepressible twinkle, for she knows 
there is a funny side to everything and she sees it too. 

However, along with her qualifications for a business life, go others, and there seems 
to be a general feeling that Helen is destined for another career.

If conscientiousness were ever to be personified, we think Helen would be the

time they fail her. But withal, the world, as well as Simmons, would be a better place 
if there were more like her! Not many girls run a 'gratis' service back and forth, carry- 
ing a capacity number of passengers in a faithful Scripps. Many a ride she has given 
her forlorn straphanger friends and they miss her in more ways than one since she moved

Pineapple and Men are Jo's specialties. But neither her insatiable appetite for 
the former, nor her whirl of good times with the latter have prevented her from being a 
loyal Simmonsite and a credit to '23. And speaking of men — the most popular fellow 
in college owes no small part of his success to Jo. Was it not she who ran errands, flew 
to the printer's, catalogued names and collected subscriptions, — all for Mic? And 
who can forget her clever manipulation of Miss Enos's lorgnette, in Mic's latest Show? 
Now just change the scene to some settlement house and you'll find her an ingenious 
Social Worker. That's not all, but if you never saw the merry, mischievous twinkle 
in those blue eyes, well — you just don't know the rest — it's Jo.

What would we of '23 do without our little French cousin, Essie Donahue? Whether 
it's Essie as "an elderly gentleman of eighty, taking a brisk morning walk" or Essie 
rendering one of her classic repertoire, such as, "She was the garbage man's daughter," 
we wouldn't miss it for anything. With a little blarney here, and a whole lot of blarney 
there, Esther walks right into everybody's heart. 

Those who know her best always think of her as a physicist because Senior year, 
long after the rest of us had abandoned Physics, it was still a very popular subject with 
her, and she was still an ardent admirer of Prof. David Leland Heminway!

Way by selling hair nets. Remember? You bet we do!

Did you ever see anyone who could fly around any faster than Dot can? She's a 
dot on the landscape before you've had time to recognize her in passing. You finally 
decide that it really was she who went whirling past because you catch the echo of an 
especially merrv "Hi" just in time to solve the mystery. 

There is an unsolvable mystery about Dot, though, and that is how she manages 
to combine breathlessness with "that tailored look".

"Dot," "Duff 1 

Dot comes from the patriotic town of Belleville, New York. She is one of the 
total population of 347. The town is patriotic because it has sent three of its daughters 
to Simmons. Of course, the fact that all three came from the same family has nothing 
to do with it. But Duff does not follow exactly in her sisters' footsteps. She is proving 
the versatilitv of the House of Eastman by making a success of Public Health nursing. 
If being svmpathetic, as well as an awfully good sport, are desirable qualities for a 
nurse to possess. Duff will hold her own in that profession until someone recognizes 
her abilities in the housekeeping line.

Edith Abbott Eastman 

Edith is a darling! She is — much as she may protest she is not! She's one of these 
people just born to be good — a gentle flower growing amid a very prickly lot of burrs and 
thistles — if you will. It's not very complimentary to the rest of us, but, when you 
come to think it over, you must see that it is true. But, don't think for one minute she's 
one of these sickly, anemic hot-house plants, like "Little Eva" or "Elsie Dinsmore" — 
not on your life! Edith is one of the "brown-eyed Susans," who laugh all day long, 
whether the sun is shining or not. Our brothers would call her a darn good sport, and, 
although our caps and gowns forbid our using exactly that sort of language, we can and 
do say, "Aye, aye, sirs!" with all our hearts. If this were the Age of Chivalry, Edith 
would be Elaine, and all the world would be her Launcelot.

Picture for a moment, if you please, a moonlight night, a porch, and a lovelorn

for the tense. If we were doing it we'd say, "Oh, what a pal IS Margie," with all our 
hearts. And we'd not be exaggerating a bit. She has all the requirements for such a 
position — sympathy, common-sense, understanding, and humor, with so few of the 
drawbacks that we won't bother to mention them. Such, an equipment, backed by a 
Simmons S. B. ought to prove equal to any situation, past, present or future.

Camilla Edholm 


It is a serious question whether or not to mention the large number of unknown men

Ought I to write to him again?" was very misleading, to those who didn't know it was 
all for Civic League. 

In speaking of Mil we hate to use that word versatile again, but when a girl does 
everything, from writing learned articles that receive Dr. Gay's scholastic commenda- 
tion, to swimming like the one and original duck, what other word can you use? Just 
by way of comment we'd like to add that in spite of all her cleverness Mil has missed her 
calling. When anybody says "Let's have a party" Mil says, "Let's dress up," and you 
ought to see the costumes that girl can get out of an old middy tie and a sunshade. 
She ought to be Lucille's right hand man.

Every year or so, some learned scholar pokes his head outside his study window and 
takes a peek at the world. Then he pulls it in again, and sits himself down to write a 
book about what a mess this world is in. And just because he is an eloquent gentleman, 
well-supported by an army of stump-speechifying followers — we read his book, or listen 
to his friends and wonder what we're coming to, anyhow. Not so Esther! She'd set us 
right in a hurry. She's one of these capable souls who can turn the silver lining to ANY 
cloud out, so that every one can see it's there. She is so cheerful, and sensible, that we 
just have to perk up, and decide that the scholar did not see the WHOLE world that 
time he looked out of his window.

that Thelma belongs to the Science School — and thereby acquired a halo in our unlearned 
eyes. We also thought we knew she was exceedingly quiet. Therein we erred. She is 
quiet, but not exceptionally so. Also she is witty, and conscientious. She takes things 
seriously, and works hard. Consequently, she rates high marks. We thought we worked 
but if marks are proof, we were in error. However, that is beside the point. The 
point is. we are well satisfied with the results of our search, and only regret we had not 
made it four years sooner.

When Virginia came to us in the fall of 1919, she only intended to stay two years. 
So she packed three years of shorthand and typewriting into two. But when it came

Student's Room or in the locker-rooms with unique descriptions of fellow classmates 
and friends. Virginia has an irresistible laugh that just gets you! If you want to test 
your powers of self-control, just try to keep a straight face and listen to one of her yarns! 
Besides all this, Virginia has a sober side. She teaches shorthand and typewriting 
at Lynn High Night School, and if you don't think it takes a serious-minded person to 
do this, just ask any Sec. girl about it.

Dot is an artist! Honest she is! If you don't believe it, ,iust take a piece of cloth, 
or maybe two, up to her room, and tell her you need a dress, or a skirt, or anything in 
the dressmaking line, and that you want her to make it look like a "Worth Creation." 
You may have to use a little moral 'suasion, because Dot is a very modest young lady, 
but the result will be a DREAM, absolutely guaranteed! Besides, if you didn't know 
her before, you will have found one of those friends who is "a very present help in time

once the awesome effect of any English instructor has worn off. Do you wish proof? 
Just mention Chicago. Immediately Helen is right on the job, vigorously upholding

A librarian's envied characteristics! Accuracy, cheerfulness, efficiency, orderli- 
ness, neatness — all these seem especially applicable to "Dot." 

Whether she's controlling the angry mob who are mobbing the "Children's Book- 
shelf", or explaining to the deaf (and the 'dumb') just how to get the latest information 
on patent dish-mops and such, she's the same old Dot: and the same old adjectives 
apply just the same.

Ruth Choate Harlow 

Ruth can keep still the longest of any one you ever have known, — that is, unless 
you question her concerning her opinion of the sewing department, which is some opin- 
ion! But nothing escapes her. She makes a perfect audience for Alice, and never in- 
terrupts. Just the same, Ruth, we'd like to know, — whence came that young Apollo?

Gertrude Harrington 

One can tell when exam time is coming, for most of us assume an air either of 
utter abandon, depression, or morbid resignation to our fate. But you never see any 
of these symptoms in Gertrude. She is her same calm self — with time and inclination 
to be a truly interested friend and listener to the most hopeless tale of woe you have to 
offer. As a matter of fact, Gertrude's notes might not be able to offer much in the hour 
of need, since she has to admit she can't even read them. But notes don't matter much 
when you've a head which just naturally retains essentials and automatically classifies 
your knowledge as you go along.

Ruth Genevieve Harrington 

"To know her is to love her, none more dear." 
There issues from the lockers just beyond the stairs a series of "Tee-hees." Don't 
be alarmed. It's only our 1923 "baby" amusing herself. She can be serious we 11 
admit, especially when stricken with an attack of "Typewriting Despondency." She 
is decidedly too fond of red-headed girls, particularly those of the Natick variety. 
They just won't let her behave, to hear her tell it, but if all "babies" were as con- 
scientious as Ruth, what a reputation would be theirs!

For four long years we've liked to look at Hazie. As Sophs, we opera-glassed her

spry, little wife in "Lima Beans;" and as Seniors, we marvelled at her fashion Show 

But it isn't only Simmons girls that claim her as their "Cousin Hazie," for didn't 
her class of settlement "kids" save up their pennies to buy a big bouquet— all tor

Muriel Hedden 

One would almost expect that so ardent a Y. W. worker would be a sedate, quiet, 
goggled sort of person, but Muriel is quite the opposite. Maqua, to be sure, does not 
cater to the staid and severe, but insists that we need up-and-coming girls to keep our 
Y. W. progressive. 

And here is a statement of sufficient importance to deserve a paragraph all to itself. 
Muriel was the first "Shifter" at Simmons! 

She says that coming to college has changed her views about several things, but 
admits that her ideas on Platonic friendship are the same.

most "Hopeful" member!

The complexities of Spanish verbs and Cataloguing haven't muddled Marcia in the

end, so there's no need for her to worry. Dates and dances serve as a wonderful stimu- 
lant for keeping eyes sparkling, we notice. She'd brighten up the darkest corner in 
most any library, but somehow, we're wondering whether the future won't find her 
"living happily ever after" in some different setting after all.

Right this way to a first-class student of Mr. Turner's! When you want to know 
how to do accounts, and when you want to know what a wonderful man the accounts 
teacher is, ask Eleanor. But you might know she is a hum-dinger as an accountant 
because anyone who can keep Student Government accounts straight, and be smart 
enough to get clubby with a far-famed character in the Bursar's Office, is some little 
expert at figgers. 

But don't think for a minute that the Accounts teacher is the only man Eleanor 
likes! She certainly would hate to have any of the opposite sex, judging by the way we 
hear her rave about one man, enthusiastically, and then about another.

Perhaps it is Doris' intimate association and mechanical experience with Ford

grateful for the glimmer of hope she gives by asking intelligent questions.

Clarissa Hulse 


Faith in the prophecies of our "intelligence angle" measurement has been sadly 
shaken, for Clarissa's angle has been judged "unusually small." How puffed up we felt, 
we folks whose measurements were good! And what a blow to us to have this theory 
exploded. For surely if this test were true our Academy President's angle would have 
required a yard stick for measurement. We're glad we have no "disposition angles" 
to compare with Clarissa's, for without any testing at all we'd have to put that down 
for her at 180 degrees!

We're in a quandary — we don't know how to describe Pete Hurlburt. We'd like

ask you — members of '23 — what would you call a person who dusted your room, if you 
were expecting company; insisted on washing the dishes after any sort of party or tea; 
fed you gloriously whenever her laundry came from home — even mended your hosiery 
rather than let it go holey? She calls herself, "the old lady," but we know better. She 
won't be an old lady for the next hundred years at least, and when she does, she'll be the 
dearest old lady on earth — so there!

No one who has not felt the thrill of wondering about what is behind a closed

body, determined to mind her own business and to keep still about it. Yet there is 
something wonderfully fascinating and attractive behind that invisible closed door, as 
any one so fortunate as to be allowed to peep within could tell you. If you do not 
believe this, just notice how sad and forlorn her chums look when Jeffie is not with them.

All the way from Worcester came this unsophisticated miss to learn more about

complished both. In spite of the bustle and hustle of four busy years at college, her 
good-will-toward-all spirit and her unassuming, quiet ways still constitute two of the 
largest assets on the Balance Sheet of "Myrt's" character.

Here's her characteristic remark — unfailing before any chem. exam — "Oh, girls, 
I know nothing, absolutely nothing about it, I'm going to flunk." And then she 
goes and gets a high rank. 

Marion claims that she is no sport, but we've had our doubts ever since Junior- 
Senior picnic — when she caused the "tubs-to-reel" and the "wheels-to-whirl," with their 
joy at affording her so much pleasure.

Mildred always feels lucky if she, gets back to the Dorms in time for lunch. Be-

When is Mildred not Mildred? When she is earnest? No, we must refute even 
this foolish paradox. Our editorial conscience demands it. For Mildred is always 
earnest, be she occupied with Honor Board or hockey stick.

Mary has two "outstandings"

Which quite off-set each other 
In a way that's strange to see.

For copying Buff'lo Bill, 
And riding bucking broncos 
— Or cows — about at will. 

The second's lettered "conscience" 
It's the stronger of the two, 
And it keeps her here at Simmons 
Doing just what she should do!

We often wondered how to account for the fact that Blanch is so different from 
most New Englanders. Recently we have discovered the reason — she was born in 
Tennessee. Thus are explained the mysteries of her leisureliness, her unique manner 
of speech, and her propensity for romantic English compositions.

keep at least her digestive apparatus warm, she certainly thaws out when she sits at an 
organ or a piano. But to know Mildred at her best, you should dance with her, for 
dancing — and clothes — are her specialties. On such occasions only does she seem to 
forget the ever pursuing nightmare of that demon theme she has to write for tomorrow!

Wilma Mead 


"Anything worth doing at all is worth doing well." 
Wilma is conscientious as the day is long, and woe be unto the unlucky mortal 
who unwittingly ventures to intrude when she is penning a masterpiece for Psychology 
or half buried in Dewey. But she tackles everything in that whole-hearted way, and 
when the spirit of jollity descends upon her, we find that she can be quite as silly as the 
rest of us. This little essay would not be complete without mention of her temper, so 
beautifully exhibited when she is in the art of tying up packages- — her pet aversion. 
If we were asked to summarize Wilma, we would do it something like this, — not a 
flapper, not a highbrow, but just about 99.44% nice girl.

Dorothy Mifflin 


A sudden burst of laughter in the back of the room, and we all know that it issues 
from none other than Dotty Mifflin, and either she's in mischief herself or getting some- 
one else in! One thing is sure, you can inevitably count on Dot to cause a riot. 

She always leaves a streak of jazz behind her, too. That puffed-out hair, those 
dangling ear-rings, and those sporty stockings! Even a cap and gown, when donned 
by Dot, loses its subtle air of sanctity.

I'll say that it's not very slow!"

Brockton has produced many, but none so bright as Brick. We refer of course to

Betsy can show equal speed on the piano, the typewriter, and the stairs between

Who can easily forget Alice in her cap and gown, a dignified member of the Lunch-

balance sheet, she hurried home to take in a show or a dance? She even had to hurry to 
get to classes sometimes. But we notice that she didn't take it too hard if she did miss 
one or two, because she came through with the marks all right. We say nothing of the 
little extra study in nature and atmospheric conditions done on occasional motor trips 
through the mountains or to the Cape. We can picture her as a clever court reporter 
or as a charming secretary, gracing some well-ordered office — a dentist's perhaps, — who

"It would talk, — Lordl how it talked." 
Simmons has seen her but little, — a class now and then perhaps, with an unswerving 
devotion to Government, — but Tech has been her field of activities. A tea-dance, a 
theater, and the weekly football game, — Murt sure has gone the rounds. But through 
it all she has kept her faithful line of chatter, and maybe she doesn't have the History 
Department stepping around.

In spite of her dieting and the trials of keeping us all obedient, Peg has come 
through college minus gray hairs, and with enough vitality left to pick up the threads 
of an argument when she hears one down the corridor. As a Member of the House, 
Peg would be fine, but as a dramatic impersonator she would be better, for along that 
line she has kept us amused through all fo,ur years, and has given herself a good time too.

Margaret Newcombe 


Margaret kept modestly in the background for our first two years, and those who 
know her best realize what a lot the class has missed. Her Senior year has been charac- 
terized by frequent precipitations at nine bells into an S:4o Shorthand Class, but her 
lateness in arrival has been made up for by almost unfailing "perfect transcripts." We 
prophecy for "Markey" a very successful future, but we deeply suspect that her Secre- 
tarial days are numbered.

It's a shame about these day girls — it really is! We don't see half enough of them! 
Take Beth, for instance. So far as we have had an opportunity to judge, Beth is a 
friendly, witty person who uses her brains — especially in Education class. In so far as 
the limited time between classes and lab. periods permits, Beth gives us delightful 
glimpses of that world in which she lives outside of College hours. It is a world of teas, 
and dances, and lovelorn men galore — all of which make us wish that her headquarters 
were at the Dorms, instead of on Summit Avenue.

Household Ec. has kept Helen pretty well occupied for the past four years. But 
no matter how busy she is, or how hard she studies, she is one of those girls whom 
you can always depend upon, because she's always "there" when asked to do anything. 
Now don't get the wrong impression of Helen! She doesn't study all the time — she 
plays the cello very efficiently and enjoys a good time as well as any of us. In fact, 
you might ask her what she does with her Wednesday nights.

We are indebted to Somerville High School for sending us Hilde, with her soft voice

that her appearance at Convocation with the envied blue and gold ribbon caused many 
astonishecFremarkssuch as, "My dear! I didn't know she was in." Hilde is one of those 
fortunate individuals who possess both a fund of appreciative humor and academic 
ability. A few of us suspect that Kansas might be able to explain that far-away look 
in Hilde's eyes.

Enter the perfect secretary! Efficiency personified, and along with efficiency — 
"personality, character, promptness, neatness, accuracy, willingness, dependability, 
tact" and all the rest of the attributes approved by English 70! 

Flop is going to be the power behind some throne. We can picture its occupant 
sliding therefrom with a sigh of perfect assurance whenever Flop is on duty. Somehow 
you just feel, whenever she is in charge, that there's really no point in being on the job 
yourself. Everything is sure to be done better than you could accomplish it, so why 
bother? Fortunately there is only one Flop. Otherwise — we hate to think how lazy 
we'd have grown by this time.

To even try to tell of all her virtues —

Eleanor, hailing from Cincinnati, just naturally couldn't help choosing a librarian's

her promptness to first hour classes! But as a rule she persists in moderation. If you 
want Eleanor to break forth into passionate oratory, ask her about Cincinnati!

"What fairy-like music steals over the sea, 
Entrancing our senses with charmed melody?" 
Alice. Yes, it's Alice. Her very touch expresses her joy. I wonder what brought 
her downstairs to the piano. It must have been the telephone that calls her so often 
and detains her so long. Is it a football game, tea-dancing, or the theater this time, 
Alice? Well, we just envy the person at the other end! 

Her latest specialty is nursing at the Mass. General. I fear the hospital will be 
swamped with patients. The rumor goes that plans are already under way for an ad- 
dition. She says her duties are strenuous — but at what? Mass. General, or Harvard?

We hear that Pinney's fudge always has to be cooked over several — or more! —

"right off the bat" what she sets out to do. 

It surely was a shock when our decorous Pinney calmly walked into our midst one 
afternoon last year with 7»uc//-bobbed hair. Dire predictions were cast as to her success 
as a social worker, but evidently her settlement people take to her bob, with its result- 
ing youthful appearance, as much as we do! In between her social work, Y. W., hockey, 
basketball, and Mic, she has found plenty of time to enjoy herself — as her three Dart- 
mouth Carnivals will testify.

A flash of blue eyes, an irresistable giggle, and Rita is with us. Always a little 
late, to be sure, but her ever-ready excuse and ever-heavy line fully convince you that 
it just wasn't her fault! 

She started out bravely at Simmons determined to devote her life to Science, only 
to decide that a Household Economics education would be better adapted to her needs. 
Even Harvard men must eat! 

Rita is delightfully mysterious about her future, but the fact that she's an antidote 
for those "Examination Blues" and at the same time can manage Fran, studies, and 
dusky settlement classes, assures us that it will be of the best.

Elsie Potter 

You may not believe us when we tell you, and the dictionary would surely bear you 
out in your arguments against us, but it's true that Elsie — this particular Elsie, at least 
— has many synonyms. 

Elsie means ease, languor, serenity, inaccessibility, exclusiveness — and lots more . 
besides that we don't know anything about of course. If we did, we might decide that 
energy, liveliness, serenity— always serenity — ingeniousness, entertainingness, were 
more truly synonyms after all. 

But who can tell? Not we, surely, for we've never had half a chance to get ac- 
quainted. We've missed out, we know.

The call of Simmons was so strong that Lee even left her own college town to come

bit of a smile, a little "almost" lisp, a pair of twinkling eyes, and an unlimited string of 
endearing pronouns and one can do most anything. Virginia reminds us of bygone 
days, when we used to say, "I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me."

long hours, for you see Marilla commutes from Haverhill. What would some of the 
Dorm girls say if they had to leave their house at 6:20 A. M. and not return until (i:20 
P. M.? That's what Marilla does every day, and she gets there in time for her first 
hour class, too. Good work, Marilla! !

and after classes are over she will hie herself home and prepare for another evening of 
pleasure. When you meet her around the college building, she is always ready for a 
little chat; so when and where she does her studying is a mystery yet to be solved.

We suspect Gertrude of being rather more-than-usually versatile. We know she's

she manages to quell the rebellious books in some clever side-line action. 

And of course she might easily be a dramatic's satellite, if she so desired. Anyone, 
since Sophomore year, could tell you that. We'd even accuse her of carefully concealed 
athletic ability — except, of course, that that's something one just naturally doesn't 
hold against a person. 

We ask you why Gertrude, not being the type of violet born to blush unseen, has 
been so modest a member of our blooming band?

Anita has an uncanny ability for "getting awaj " with things. We're not implying 
that she has kleptomaniacal tendencies. We simply mean that she is continually as-

instructor b> fluent recitation. Anita's recitations are always entertaining because they 
are invariably original. We suspect her of slight acquaintance with text-books, but we 
don't hold this against her — not so long as she's able to hold her own without them.

Whenever a "23er" who knows Shorty thinks of her, she thinks simultaneously of 
Shorty, Shorty's little basket, and Shorty's diamond. She does this instinctively, just 
as she thinks of cigars and General Grant, eye-glasses and Teddy Roosevelt, or a tub in 
connection with our friend Diogenes. In these lies Eliza's individuality and difference 
from the common run of folks. 

As if further proof were needed, — Shorty, when she writes some letters, leaves the 
dull realms of prose and soars with Shelly, Keats and Rosetti to the heights of poetry.

To enable you to form your own impression of Pearl, you need to know only a 
simple fraction of her record. She's the kind of a girl who can lose half a term for such 
a minor thing as an operation for appendicitis; come back smiling in an incredibly short 
time, and then capture all the A's given at Harvard Summer School while she is making 
up that half-term. Whatever Pearl attempts, she attempts with pep and earnestness, 
and she gets it done enough ahead of time to show some of those who haven't started 
yet a few of the latest dance steps. You might call her bobbed-hair style cute, but it has 
a lot of dignity all its own.

Pricilla Alice Smith 

Pricilla is one of these individuals whom the Gods especially favor. For two rea- 
sons. No matter how many biology specimens she may have to dissect, nor how hot the 
day may be, she can leave the Main Building of Simmons College any time after 4:04 
P. M., without a hair out of place, or a single crease in her shirtwaist. How does she 
do it? Don't ask us — ask her! But the other reason is the one for which we really 
envy her. She has that indefinable something which enables her to have a man, or two, 
or three, at any time she so desires. Such bliss! Xo frantic scramblings the night be- 
fore the Copley or Prom, or anything! But then — we would be surprised if it were 
otherwise, for, under a demure exterior is hidden a most charming and delightful little 
person; the more you know her the more you want to know her.

With reverence and awe '23 takes off its hat to Ethel who brought home the lunch-

career is destined to be short-lived, — maybe. We have visions of a neat little nest run

Marjorie Spear 

Here comes Margie down the hall — 
Xot too short nor yet too tall. 
Walking to class with steady gait — 
She won't be early, nor yet late. 

Margie's never in a hurry, 
Always calm, serene, unflurried, 
All of this she needs to be — 
A commuter's life she leads, j ou see!

To watch Helen in Government class, as she painstakinglv inscribes page upon

scribing all sorts and kinds of complicated figures on the ice. We understand, however, 
that we have a celebrated skater in our midst. How she has ever escaped the piercing 
eye of Endowment's publicity manager, we cannot know. That she has escaped it we 
are sure, else we would surely have had an ice carnival, featuring Helen, on the Fenwav 
or at Xantasket, at least once during the four years she has been concealing her pe't

'Dot," "Dotty" 

It's nothing to Dotty to write a play 

Before her breakfast, — so they say. 

The posters she makes, in purple and green, 

Are really the best you've ever seen. 

Her remarkable genius is never perverse; 

It breaks out in beeyoutiful, passionate verse. 

She always has something, — maybe a bum knee, 

Or even a crush on the poor faculty. 

Our versatile "Dirty", she dances, she sings (?) 

And she always is saying the funniest things.

A little girl from a big town! A real credit to the Library reference course, for ask

Cleveland, and she's right there with the answer quick. "Three O'Clock in the Morn-

Be it Y. W., Dorm Government, decorations for a dance, Mic, posters, or a dinner

she came to us a youngster. Sophomore year we thought she had grown up. But 
Junior and Senior years found her once more with bobbing curls. We wonder if this 
youthfulness is in anyway responsible for her eternal activity.

Marion Styles 

Marion, although of a practical turn of mind, is a subtle charmer, You don't be- 
lieve it? Well, just watch her in our Simmons back yard. Hockey balls, tennis balls, 
basketballs, and baseballs just naturally seem to flit to her at precisely the right time. 
Elusive balls certainly aren't elusive for Marion! Rockford surely lost a good sport 
(taken in all the meanings of the word) when Marion packed her tooth-brush and came 
to Simmons!

Hey diddle, diddle, Rachel's John, comes to East House night and morn. 
He gets off, while she gets on, the remarkable flivver of Rachel's John. 
Rachel is the one and only gloom dispenser. To listen to her one half hour is to

Tommy came, and went, and came back again. Tommy's hair was, and then was 
not, and now is again. For all of which we rejoice with exceeding gladness, because we 
like to have Tommy with us, and with us "with hair-pins." 

Here's a girl with a carefully regulated exuberance control, — -extraordinarily. 
But just watch her on the hockey field, and you'll notice that the control has htit control 
for an hour or two!

Dorothy Claire Thompson 

""r\„f > 


Dot spends a good share of her time upholding the honor of the Library School. 
She does this cheerfully and well. She is seldom ruffled. Oh — she does fuss a bit, now 
and then, but. even when she is most vehement, you know she doesn't mean it. We 
have puzzled over this serenity of hers a good deal. The other night, as we tossed on 
our rumpled pillow, the solutions came to us. There are two of them. One is Avis 
Clarke. The other is Cliff Island, Maine. Even the trials of a Library student cannot 
disturb such a friendship as Avis' and Dot's for long. And no place on earth is quite 
so lovely as Cliff Island. No wonder Dorothy is happy.

Emily Thompson 


As a little word of advice to Simmon's instructors, we would suggest that they keep 
an eye on that new secretarial department that Emily is going to start. No, it isn't 
that we doubt her loyalty to her college, it's just that we know what wonderful ability 
she has for organization and management. 

Not only will her students be well trained workers, but we know they will be well- 
trained athletes as well; for certainly Emily's mighty tennis strokes and lengthy 
baseball throws aren't going to escape those observing pupils. We fear Emily will 
have to run two departments instead of one.

Had Frances lived in the time of William the Conqueror, the nomenclature on her

by her shining example, had we seen more of her. But a Buick roadster has whisked her 
out of our sight these whole four years. And now she plans to comb the snarls out of the 
llama's hair, and put some energy and order into South America — if Medford will let 
her! (Oh, those rides to Maine!)

"Once upon a time a maid, 
"Sat demurely in the shade." 
It must have been just such a girl as Laura who inspired this song. Even now, 
after four years of 'John Simmons' prescription, she has retained that same sweet, un- 
affected demeanor. Learning industry doesn't seem to disturb her peace of mind, 
either. She sails serenely on without visible effort. As a secretary, she will be a per- 
fect little piece of efficiency.

Life for Lee is one snicker! And we don't wonder. She can make more breaks 
than could five others in the same length of time. And she simply delights in breaking 
up Mr. Collester's speech-making class or in kidding some innocent Harvard student out 
of his senses. She has two pet jokes, "Why should I call you for breakfast? I wasn't 
hungry," and, "Heard the story about the three men? He! he! he!"

Miriam Sarah Wadhams 


All people have hobbies. Most people have peculiar ones. Some people have one 
of diagnosing the characters of other people. If such a person were to see Miriam on a 
Chestnut Hill car. he would characterize her somewhat like this, "Nice, sensible girl, 
rather quiet and shy," and pass on to the crotchety old gentleman two seats back. But 
he would have been far from doing Mim justice. Most assuredly she is sensible, and 
conscientious too. Also she is painfully shy until she gets acquainted. Nevertheless, 
she has a mind of her own, which she expresses in no uncertain terms when the occasion 
demands. At such times we outwardly quake, and inwardly gloat with wicked glee. — 
If she should live to rival Methusalah, she would still keep people guessing as to just 
what she would do or say next. That is where her charm lies — in being different when 
you would expect her to be most conventional.

Marion Gertrude Walker 

Marion may be a Walker, but she is also a trotter. She is on the trot every minute 
of the day, for with all the Clubs and committees which are continuously calling for her 
cooperation, merely walking would never get her there. The accounts materials, which 
she usually has under her arm, may be for Mr. Turner, for the Massachusetts Club, or 
for "Nat" Hall (this last is a society). But whoever, or whatever they are for, you may 
be sure they're up-to-date, and in a most legible form. And one word more. Marion's 
"busy" sign never keeps out friends.

Marjorie Wallis 


Some day when the New Simmons Dictionary for the Class of '23 comes out, one 
of the synonyms for "neatness" will be Marjorie Wallis. How on earth she does it, 
we can not tell, but never have we seen Marjorie, or Marjorie's room, out of order. If 
she were to take part in a Ghost Walk as it was in the days before "Regulations," after 
the last uppity ghost had been vanquished, Marj would emerge calm, smiling, a little 
flushed perhaps, but with never a hair out of place nor a wrinkle in her immaculate, 
tailored shirtwaist.

We used to flatter ourselves that Mildred came to Simmons because we were so

dance (previousl. approved) may be had from Miss Walter, though we can tell you 
now that the the Copley is her favorite.

for there are always lonesome folks around. 

Who is there that can compare with Leone for neatness? Be it her person or her

A capacity for arguing with the most indisputably perfect logic that ever failed of 
being clapped into a law school. Oh Kath! You have missed your calling. Yet we 
doubt if your grave companions of the bar would appreciate half as much as we do, that 
little streak of irresponsibility about meeting classes, that childish delight in squander- 
ing a nickle on a dill pickle and an evening on the pros and cons of keeping one's maiden 
name after marriage, and that apparent inattention in class which proves so exaspera-

But, unlike many busy people Ruth is never so busy that she doesn't have time to

Quiet, retiring Mary. She certainly did surprise us all. How were we to know 
when we met her quietly passing through the corridors, that she was keeping something 
from us? How were we to interpret that shy, happy gleam in her eyes? How did we 
know there was someone, somewhere, even as far away as Turkey, just waiting for a 
chance to set his foot on good, old New England soil? How were we to know all this? 
Well, the fact is, we didn't! Until — well — Mary just couldn't keep it a secret any 
longer. She just had to share it with us, so she showed us the ring. That was enough 
— we guessed the rest for you know we Simmons girls are quite clever at guessing!

"Pleasure and action make the hours seems short." 
Let the truth be known! Bertha doesn't quite see why Simmons Secretaries have 
so much stupid home-work thrust upon them, "It takes so-o-o much time." And 
really, shopping-trips downtown and parties out in Boston's suburbs add far more to 
one's education. Yes, even counting calories, or maintaining automobile service to and 
from college is more fun than delving into the depths of accounts. Speaking of ma- 
chines. Bertha certainly lias k ept up a close competition with the Boston Elevated these 
four years. She has robbed them of several good patrons, for the other Somerville 
girls apparently have found riding in a perfectly good Marmon far more enjoyable than 
hanging on to a strap. And that's just one example of Bertha's generositv.

don't let her fool you. She can be serious to be sure, but she can show her less serious 
side without trying very hard. Ede is one of the quiet, likable ones of our class. I can 
hear her now, as she reads this, saying, "Know any more jokes?" But it's no joke 
this time, Ede, it's the truest truth.

Here is a girl who never lets pleasure interfere with business. She never puts off

Had the "preparedness" propagandists — "befo* de wah" — wanted to impress our 
class — (always assuming that '23 had existed at that time) with the results their policies 
would achieve, they could have found no better way than to have put on display life-

Whatever keys she hits respond, quickly and correctly. They seem her slaves. Nor 
must we forget her mastery of other keys besides. The pianola is a poor competitor 
when Irene begins to punish the ivories. And thank goodness we don't have to urge

A little ray of sunshine follows her everywhere. She is a friend to everyone and is

respondence, and Olive has an awfully large number of letters to answer. Why not 
equally good reports in English? Well, when actions speak louder than words, why 
talk? '

Jeannette Winstian 

If, by any chance, your troubles depress you, or studies worry a bit, it's an inspira-

Jeannette doesn't believe in worrying, and for that reason ranks with those lucky indi- 
viduals who usually get the most out of life by not taking it too seriously. She's lucky 
in lots of other games too, perhaps because she knows some of the arts of sophistication. 
But Jeannette's way is natural and graceful and lends itself to unusual charm, especially 
striking in the ballroom (and you will admit that that appeals more than the class-

Her one ambition is to make a perfect copy the first time in Typewriting SI.

Marion Constance Woodward 

The bell has rung long since. The door opens. With a huge smile and a naughty 
twinkle, Marion slips by the Prof, and slyly into her seat. Five minutes elapse. "Oh,

We rest assured that this period will yield but blank pages in Marion's notebook. 

In spite of such Profs. Marion lives happily on, — a special specimen of calmness 
and unchangeable serenity. View her in any kitchen, be it the College Lab. or that 
darling tea-room in Portsmouth, and you will find her unruffled, no matter if the cake 
did fall, and an extra large group of people flocked in for tea. 

4 Eulow Street, Beach Bluffs. 

Swampscott High School. 

Household Economics. 

Endowment Captain (1). 

Esther Ziselman 

Menorah's leader, the Review's Conan Doyle, and Pop's righthand man on Wed- 
nesdays — that's Esther. She's as busy a lady as you can find. She plays a snappy 
game of hockey, dances like Irene Castle herself, and when it comes to making speeches 
— well just ask her about her old friend Tutankhamen. 
45 Gaston Street, Roxbury, 
Dorchester High School. 

Orchestra (1), Junior Welcoming Committee, President Menorah (3, 4), 
Hockey (4). 

Helen Zons 

Tall, blond and stately is this Helen. Woe be unto the person who says a word 
against Simmons, to this true-blue member of '23. Given a second story room and a fire 
escape rope, and we believe Helen would repeat her Sophomore ghost walk stunt. Slid- 
ing down a rope has some advantages disregarding burnt hands, hasn't it, Helen? 
Pleasantville, Pennsylvania. 
Edinbo>-o State Normal School. 
Household Economics. 

House Chairman (1), Endowment Captain (3, 4), Junior Welcoming Com- 

Jean Murdock 
c Her memory long will live in all our hearts."

If you can pass six weeks without a flunk card 
When all the rest are showing theirs to you, 
If you can pledge a hundred to Endowment 
And pay when an installment falleth due, 
If you can study in the students' rest room 
While others all discuss their latest beaux, 
If you can stay in ev'ry Saturday evening 
To study hard — resist the latest shows, 
If you can do the task assigned in history, 
And physics, English, French, and even chem., 
Just gaze upon a Senior — high-brow, lofty, 
Perhaps someday you'll be like one of them!

STUDENT GOVERNMENT: Those words should mean a great deal to each 
and every one of us. But it seems as if some of us do not stop to consider just 
what they do mean. 

For this very reason. Student Government has tried to arouse more interest 
within the student body this year through the adoption of a new system. This 
new system provides for direct representation of each individual member of the 
student body. Groups of thirty members each, form the basis of this system. 
These groups meet once a month to discuss college problems of current interest. 
The group leaders, in turn, meet and "compare notes," sending three representatives 
to sit with the Student Council. Thus "public opinion" is brought directly to the 
official body, influencing its decisions. 

Several years ago the girls then in college launched the ship "Student Govern- 
ment." Now, just because this ship has become too small for our growing needs, 
we do not want to let it sink. Let us, instead, build a new one strong enough to fit 
our purpose. Let us make Student Government what it should be, a vital part of 
college life.

DORMITORY Government is strictly of the girls, by the girls, and for the girls 
who live in the dormitories. It is a miniature democracy where Freshmen, 
Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are free to voice their feelings at any time. 

We make our rules, and we can change them. We stand for law, order and 

We are a great chain whose strength depends on each individual link. 
It is the hope of the Association of 1923 that, in all the years to come, there 
mav never be a weak link in the chain.

EVEN as the "Simmons Female Institute," with its expansion and development 
and the taking on of new duties and privileges, has given way to Simmons 
College, so the terms "Student Conduct" and "Student Conduct Committee" have 
broadened out into "Honor System" and "Honor Board." The Honor System is a 
spirit which reaches to and includes every single girl in the college. Dishonor is not 
a school-girl offense punishable only by some physical deprivation. Honor is a 
much deeper, more intangible thing of the mind, the soul. It has very real and very 
invaluable, but equally intangible assistants, conscience and willpower. 

The Honor System has been unusually successful ever since it was instituted 
and we believe it is growing more and more successful each year. Although by no 
means perfect, we feel that it is coming closer to the realization of our true aim, that 
of applying the Honor Spirit to Dormitory and social life as well as to academic 
life, to every hour of the twenty-four instead of to the four or five hours actually 
spent in classes.

WE have that $1,000,000 goal to reach by July 1, and every Simmons-ite from 
Freshman to Alum is working with might and main to see that we get there 
with flying colors. Money has been trickling in all fall from individuals and clubs, 
and although the contributions have been small, "even? little bit helps." 

Unfortunately, the undergraduates have been unable to put across a big drive, 
this year, but the interest and zeal with which '26 has entered into the spirit of it is mak- 
ing up for this deficiency. During their first three months in college, our Freshman 
successfully conducted a Tag Day, sold ribbon bows of their own class colors, and 
sent in many pledges. May this enthusiasm continue! 

Simmons has claimed the attention of the public in various ways, but recently 
she has appeared in a new role — that of exhibitor of the latest fashions. Our Fash- 
ion Show at the Copley Plaza netted the fund $1,400 and it showed the public what 
Simmons girls can be like when they get away from that "professional atmosphere." 
This event will long be remembered as one of the most fruitful of our efforts for 

The Board wishes to thank everyone for the loyal support it has had. With 
a continuance of the spirit that has been shown so far, we feel that Simmons may 
soon have what we all so heartily wish for it.

IT has been the aim of Civic League this year to build up a spirit of intelligent con- 
cern about national and international, as well as civic problems. In attempting 
to carry out the usual program including lectures, newspaper subscriptions, and 
bulletin board clippings, we have found that nothing so stimulates interest in our 
aims as the discovery that other colleges and universities are facing the same prob- 
lems of citizenship in various significant attitudes. Through an intercollegiate or- 
gan called "The New Student" we find that the questions of international relations, 
labor situations, higher education, and even student government problems are hotly 
debated, convincingly written about, and significantly acted upon by students all 
over the country. We feel that we are missing an opportunity that is open to us 
only while we are undergraduates — an opportunity to contribute our thought- 
ful opinions to this interesting development among the serious minded young 
citizens toward whom the older generation is looking expectantly for aid in the solu- 
tion of its difficulties. Our opinions, influenced by the distinct type of college to 
which we belong, are bound to differ from those of the average student, and conse- 
quently have every promise of being regarded as valuable contributions. Ours is a 
conservatism based on reason rather than tradition ; ours a liberality born of inde- 
pendence, as against a radicalism sprung from oppression. Much will be given and 
much will be gained, therefore, if the policy of participation in intercollegiate ex- 
pression is pursued by Simmons.

The Academy

THE Academy is the honorary academic society of Simmons. It was founded in 
1918 to encourage greater interest in the recognition of high standing in aca- 
demic subjects. 

In a technical college such as Simmons, the technical subjects whose relation 
to our future careers is so obvious, are likely to assume undue importance in our 
eyes. To help us realize that liberal courses as well, are necessary in the formation 
of educationally well-balanced individuals, we have the Academy. 

By one of its former presidents, the ideals of the Academy have been well 
stated as: 

"The ability to feel and appreciate beauty; loyalty to the highest and best; 
and the pursuit of the culture that broadens and enobles." 

All those who attain fifty per cent A points, or twenty-five per cent A points 
and ninety per cent A and B points in academic courses are eligible for membership 
in the Academy.

IN this the fourth year of its growth, the Ellen Richards Club has enlarged its 
policy somewhat. We have had our usual speakers and good times this year, 
besides which we have held meetings at various interesting places, and since the 
club is to advance our knowledge of and our interest in science, we have found it 
profitable to study the lives of the prominent scientists. 

Although we have but a small number of members, we hope that by encourag- 
ing student fellowship, as well as by fostering interest in scientific matters, we may 
be of real value to our college.

THE aim of the Simmons Y. W. C. A. is to carry on among students the princi- 
ples of the National Association. College itself helps us to develop mentally 
and physically. Y. W. seeks to help us to develop spiritually. It seeks to bring 
into every day activities a consciousness of Christian living. 

This year Y. W. has found a new way to raise its budget. The old system of 
membership dues has been replaced by a system of voluntary contributions and in 
so doing it has far surpassed any previous budget. The experiment has been most 
successful because we have generous spirited givers, excellent leadership, and fine 
team work. 

Membership in Y. W. has doubled itself and with increased members and a full 
treasury our efforts are rewarded. 



Rain, rain, and more rain! "Boston weather 5 " you venture, but your Maqua 
friend states that she is "just reminiscing" about her ten days up in Maine. Her 
cheerfulness seems unnatural so you ascribe it to that much-talked-of but ever 
abstract "Maqua spirit." Whatever the reason, any Maqua girl is more than 
willing to tell of the picnic supper around the campfire, the hotly contested basket- 
ball game between Simmons and Framingham Normal, Dr. Inman's fish, and the 
blazing fire in the lodge which was such a comfort to dripping "Maquites." The 
song contest, in which Simmons distinguished itself by winning second place, will 
not. be forgotten either. 

When she approaches the more personal experiences of the Conference, your 
friend's power of description lags. Dr. Archibald's lectures even' morning on re- 
ligious topics allayed many of the doubts that the discussion which preceded them 
had aroused. They were the incentive, too, of informal discussions, lasting until 
the wee hours in many of the cottages and tents. And then there was Dr. Inman's 
series of lectures on "Christian Internationalism" which made many realize the 
great need of an "international mind." To give a concise review of all that Maqua 
means to those who went in June, 1922, is not possible. The closing words of our 
contest song are indicative of the intention of every Maqua girl : 
"Your spirit strong and true, will guide us ever, 
Faith, love, and truth we've learned, Maqua, through you."

ANOTHER year in the history of the Unitarian Club is past. The average

make it a great success. 

Our speakers have dealt with Unitarianism, its spread and workers. Thru 
them we have learned more and more about our religion.

Scientists of the college ; to welcome entering Christian Scientists ; to increase love 
and friendship for all members of the college ; and to offer to those so desiring, an 
opportunity to learn the truth of Christian Science.

THE Simmons Review, the monthly magazine, has a manifold purpose, in that 
it is both a literary and news organ for the College, as well as for the Alumnae. 
Big as such an order may seem, it has its value, in making the magazine necessarily 
the essence of a publication; that is, there can be nothing that is not worthwhile, 
interesting, informatory. Since each of the three divisions cannot be given the 
space it might easily fill, each must contain only the best of its material. More- 
over, each department, while interesting its own readers primarily, must interest 
also the readers of the other departments. 

Since the magazine represents every form of college activity, it should appeal 
to every one in College. Whether it does or not depends on individual taste, like 
'most other things. At any rate, its eight issues are printed every year, some good, 
some weak, but at the least, expressing vividly the College in all its branches.

MICROCOSM has a two-fold purpose ! 
No doubt you all are weary of the time-worn adage to 'buy now lest your 
old age be barren !' But, however moth-eaten this urge may seem, we must mention 
it here. For after all, it is true that such a volume, perused in later years, cannot 
fail to awaken memories. And after all, memories are among life's chief est treasures. 

But this necessitates a long look ahead and many of us, in our undergrad days, 
are wearing tortoise-shells for short-sightedness. We want what we want, and we 
want it NOW. That's where the second fold of Mic's purpose comes in. 

Did you ever stop to think how all-inclusive a college year book is ? No ? Well , 
take a day or two off right now and do it. You'll find important among other sec- 
tions, the parts delegated to athletics and organizations. Activities, so-called, are 
an awfully important part of college life; really they are. EVERYBODY ought 
to be interested in all of them, and actively interested in at least one of them. 

What Mic hopes to do is to awaken and further this same interest. Before 
you, on these printed and pictured pages, are glimpses of the things that should 
interest and absorb you. Here they all are, spread out before you. Mic has in- 
troduced, most properly, you to them. How familiar you become rests with your- 
self. Mic only hopes that you will cultivate a speaking acquaintance ! 




(The reparing of Simmonetta Apel) 
— And then the curtains parted — 
And up rose Simmonetta Apel, 
And rose, and rose, and rose, 
And rose. 

At least seven feet of her. 
And wept. 

And whodathunkit — it was Libbie Sweet! 
But, what a change was there, my country women! 
Our tall, dressy, graceful, Sweet, girl-undergraduate 
Turned into this human crane, 
Skyscraper high — 

Draped in all the colors in Raymond's window! 
With leg o' mutton sleeves, 
And hair o' mutt coiffure, 

And that "she won't be happy 'til she gets it" ex- 
And the cow! 
And the red flannels! 

And a sure-nuf dump — burrs n'everything, 
Including tin cans! 

All this presided over by King Mic — 
Looking remarkably like Joe the Janitor, 
With a sign in his coy derby saying "King." 
— Do you believe in signs? — 
And the Microbes. 
And tears from Simmonetta — 
Loud tears. 

And then, behold, the third act! 
A Simmons study — as it would look 
If every undergrad's dad had an Endowment Fund. 
And Jo Del, at the fore of the Simmons "400," 

Good gracious — lookut Simmonetta! 
Now we know it's Libbie! 
And no more tears, 
Owing to Mic, — 
Only joy. 

And even an A from Dr. Eldridge, 
Him of the manner peculiar, 
And howl-inspiring 
All through Mic. Show! ! ! 
Don't you feel that way about it?

THIS year, Dramatic's sixth anniversary, Simmons was awakened with great 
enthusiasm by the notable deeds of the Dramatic Association, for, unlike other 
years, well known players have met with the Association. One of the most delight- 
ful of these meetings was held in Students' Room early in December, when the lead- 
ing characters of Mr. J. C. Duff's arrangement of The Beggar's Opera, recently ar- 
rived from London, told something of the history of the Opera. Afterwards any 
members so desiring were introduced to the players ; a very informal gathering was 
had, and tea was served to the guests. 

On the evenings of November 17 and 18, Dramatics again did something hither- 
to unheard of at Simmons ! Instead of giving a three act play, as always has been 
done, it produced three one-act plays; there was dancing both nights — and all for 
the price of a single show ! One play was given by each of the three lower classes. 
In producing them, another new plan was tried with very successful results ; three 
of the leading members of Dramatics acted as coaches, with the aid of Miss Franc 
and other members of the English Department. 
The plays were as follows :

Dolly Reforming Herself 

Henry Arthur Jones 
March 2nd and 3rd, 1923 

UNHAMPERED this time by changes of scenery, the Dramatic Association 
launched for its spring production a four-act play, wherein Dolly (clever and 
competent, but hopelessly extravagant) succeeded in engineering every one except 
herself and husband into the straight and narrow way. Obviously Harry — good- 
natured, self-complacent Harry couldn't get rid of his temper and other bad little 
habits without extreme discomfort to the unreformed heroine. . The languid, tragic 
air of the love-lorn Renie formed an effective and laughable contrast to Dolly's 
brightness. We must remember, too, the cynical, easy-going father, remembering 
his own wild youth with a sigh of regret; the eminent Professor, with his coldly 
scientific attitude and incisive speech; the charming young Captain, who simply 
couldn't resist making love to the ladies (particularly Renie) ; and all the other actors 
in this chuckle-producing performance. 

And to Miss Franc, for the unwearying hours she spent in polishing these, our 
diamonds in the rough, we of the Dramatic Association owe our sincerest thanks.

WHO was it that said, "Music hath charms?" Whoever he may have been, we 
agree. Have we not toiled laboriously up those four long flights to Library B 
on Friday afternoons when all the rest of our Microcosm went joyously out to play 
until Monday? What magic was it that drew us there if not those dancing eighth 
and lazy half notes ? 

Christmas Vespers, our mid-winter concert, and the concert at B. U. all proved 
that our labors were not in vain. Convocation and Commencement are always 
memorable on account of certain choking sensations due to the "fit" of your choir 
gown, and certain shaking feelings about your knees when confronted by the long 
aisle of Harvard Church. 

Our attainments have not been truly classic, but they stand for WORK and 
WORTH, no small part of which we can attribute to the faithful direction of Mrs. 
Slack. And so we hope that in the years to come, Glee Club may lure more and 
more ardent supporters to the cause of the sharps and flats. 




Mandolin Club 

THE Mandolin Club has made marked progress in these last three years. We 
have worked hard, and thanks to our valuable coach, Mr. Lansing, and our 
present coach, Mr. Audet, we are on the way to becoming accomplished musicians. 
Let us keep awake and be counted as one of Simmons' best ! 

The Mandolin Club has lost a most valuable friend by the death of Mr. George 
Lansing. He coached the Club for three years, and by his encouragement and high 
ideals, has called forth the best efforts of its members. He was a source of inspira- 
tion and it is for the members to give of their best to show their gratitude for his 
unfailing service.

IN addition to the regular program of the Simmons Athletic Association, we have, 
this year, entered into two new branches of activity. 

Last fall a conference, at which Simmons was represented, was held at Cornell. 
Here our interest in intercollegiate athletics, especially, was aroused. We found this 
subject to be one of importance in the college -girl world, and we found that the adop- 
tion of some plan whereby college teams may compete against one another is greatly 
favored by the majority. What surer way to a more vital sense of school spirit is 
there? At Cornell, too, we found enthusiastic supporters of sports which we do 
not as yet include in our own list, but which we hope to add in time. Among these 
are archery, shooting, and riding. 

Our newest and best venture, however, has been the founding of an Outing 
Club. The country cannot come to Simmons, so Simmons — at least, that part of it 
which loves the out-of-doors— must go to the country. We will soon have a cabin 
of our own — when the Outing Club waxeth strong, financially and otherwise — but 
meanwhile we have to resort to hiring some one else's. And those of us who went 
up into the woods of Jaffry, New Hampshire, for our first outing, came back with an 
enormous desire to go again and again. 

Here are two bases on which the coming classes may build. May the builders 
be successful !

ALTHOUGH our Hockey season started out rather slowly, it ended with pep 
and excitement. The three upper classes had teams so equally matched that 
in the final games two ties (1923-1925) and (1923-1924) had to be played off before 
the CUP could be presented. 1924 proved superior to 1923 in an extra ten minutes 
of snappy playing and so received the CUP again this year. 

The season was marked by two important events in our Hockey history. First, 
we were twice coached by Miss Wilson, an English Hockey expert, who emphasized 
defects in our playing already pointed out by Miss Diall. Secondly, Edith Holms- 
trom '24 was chosen as a "sub" on the All Boston Hockey Team. These two 
events, in addition to the tie match games, will make this season one well remember- 
ed by the season's players.

Singles, October 1922

1924 — Phoebe Moorhead 1926 — Default 

The struggle began by having 1923 defeat 1925. There was no game between 
1924 and 1926 as the Freshmen had to default. That made the battle between 1923 
and 1924 even hotter. It was a wonderful match which resulted in Phoebe Moor- 
head's winning the cup for the third time.

After a warm struggle between '23 and '24, the invincibles proved themselves 
still invincible, and '24 again won the cup. We tried our luck with Radcliffe, later 
on, and lost both matches to them. Better times are coming — maybe.

AS soon as the Christmas Holidays were over, the basketball season began. 
The five weeks before the practise games were spent in hard drilling. Then 
came the practise games, when various combinations could be tried out to good ad- 
vantage; following, were two more weeks of practise. During these, special em- 
phasis was placed on signals and team-play. After much lengthy consideration on 
the part of the managers and Miss Diall, the class teams were chosen and the cup 
games were played. A great deal of praise is due the winners for their team-work 
and accurate shooting. 

The success of the season is due largely to Miss Diall, and to Ed Lundstrom '21, 
who coached the Freshmen, and gave many valuable suggestions.

The Red Cross Life Saving Corps 

ANEW form of athletics was entered into by an enthusiastic group of girls last 
October when Life Saving classes were begun in the Big Tree Swimming Pool 
in Cambridge, under the instruction of Captain Jack Wallace of the American Red 
Cross. The course consisted of six lessons followed by tests in the various carries, 
lifts, breaks, and in the practice and theory of resuscitation. Thanks to the co- 
operation of Miss Diall, eighteen girls finished the work and successfully passed the 

On January 1 1 this group organized into a Life Saving Corps and elected its 
officers. Mr. Hilliard was unanimously elected president, and Dean Stites and Miss 
Diall were chosen as Honorary Members. The other officers were elected as fol- 
lows: Vice-president, Mildred Law, '23; Secretary-treasurer, Eleanor Rindge, '24; 
Medical Officer, Dr. Merrill Champion of the Department of Public Health, Di- 
vision of Hygiene; Captain, Mildred Law, '23; Instructor, Marion Davis, '25; 
1st Mate, Helen Hurlburt, '25; 2nd Mate, Camilla Edholm, '23. The following 
girls also received certificates: Arlene Ball, '23, Edna La Place, '23, Marjorie Spear, 
'23, Alice Murphy, '23, Ida Fisher, '24, Mary Sullivan, '24, Eva Band, '24, Frances 
Fowler, '25, Virginia Floyd, '25, Eunice Rossman, '25, Bernice Stearns, '26, Eleanor 
Hedges, '25, and Esther Holbrook, '25. The following, who hold previously won 
certificates, were accepted as charter members: Dorothy Staples, '23, Ruth Thomas, 
'23, Elizabeth Thomas, '24, Mary Ruth Schantz, '24, Sara Saperstein, '24, Anna 
Levenson, '24, and Allene Young, '26. 

We intend that this little group shall be a nucleus around which shall be built 
up a wonderful, organized sport in which all of us may participate when we get our 
$3,000,000 and its resulting Student-Alumnae building with its gym and swimming 


THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1923 

To Whom It May Concern 

Maybe the editor isn't grateful to 

Each and ev'ry one in Simmons College — and out — 

Who did anything at all for Mic ! 

Mic can't talk for himself. 

(Being the only male in this Female Institute 

Has made him bashful) , 

But — if — he — could 

Maybe he wouldn't just wear himself out 

Thanking folks. 

All those imaginative Seniors 

Who wrote write-ups 

About girls they didn't even know, 

And hadn't heard of . 

To say nothing of Mrs. La Forge 

Who put 

A button here and a crease there, 

Just to give those cuts 

The right effect. 

And Anne Driscoll, too 

Who almost 

Wore herself out — and wrecked the Infirmary — 

Slinging ink for Mic 

While waiting for that chicken-pox to leave her. 

And how about those poor things who 

Tried to rustle up adds 

And did it too? 

And the people — all of 'em 

Who ran Tech Show, for Mic. 

Not to mention 

All those who did the typing, 

And — and — Oh just everybody ! 

Maybe the Whole Board, 

Including Miss Mesick, 

Doesn't deserve lots of credit for doing 

All that they've done — 

And in the right spirit too. 

Not that they want any praise 

But they have it coming to them 

Just the same. 







Freshman Frolic 

ONE rainy day in April, 1920, the cars running from Brookline to the Refectory 
were filled with crowds of peculiar looking individuals. Long raincoats inef- 
fectually concealed the bare knees and extremely abbreviated skirts of these would- 
be youngsters, while hair, curly and straight, flew out recklessly, as if glad to be 
free for a while from the confining pins and net. (This was before the days of the 
bob.) Oblivious of the thoughts of the conservative people of Boston, on reaching 
Short Street we rushed from the cars to the Refectory, with all the abandonment 
of extreme youth. 

There we played all the beloved games of our (long) past childhood, and inci- 
dentally discovered what very fresh little boys some of our classmates might have 
been under other circumstances! After feasting on lollypops and ice-cream cones — 
mostly minus the cones — we regained the state of college women in time to do a 
little modern dancing before we had to pile on to the cars headed for home. Our 
only regret at the end of a wild afternoon was that, because of the "true Bostonian 
weather", we had been unable to take many snaps of our friends — to prove that 
it is possible to have a second childhood before one passes the age for enjoying it. 

' H Is ■ ■ * 





Many girls and more sheets. 
A rusty chain, long and clanking. 
Nervous giggling — a mournful dirge 
In Latin or Sanskrit, we know not which. 
Rice — ink — pepper, full of pep. 
Quarts of very wet water. 
Shivering Sophs burning the class secret. 
Our ghost walk! 

Sophomore Luncheon 

INDEED, this was a very "est" occasion as you'll admit when you understand 
exactly what an "est" occasion is! 

Didn't we all agree that green parrots are the snappiest mascots that ever were 
chosen? That green and white are the prettiest colors? That the speeches must go 
down from generation unto generation as the cleverest given at any luncheon? 
That Sophomore year is the nicest year at college? 

And didn't we agree that Simmons College is absolutely the bestest college, and 
1923 the finest class that ever entered it? ? 




Sophomore May Day 

Vague memories of Tennyson's 

You must wake and call me early 
Call me early, Mother dear, 
written in the red fruit of strawberry short-cake, haunted our dreams that cold 
May morning when we were Sophomores, and at last woke to a realization that the 
event second only to the great Luncheon would soon be in progress. 

It seemed only a continuation of our dream when the pageant really started. 
For the whole world seemed full of fairies, and nymphs. The May Queen had the 
long fair braids of Rapunzel, (did Rachel Ward ever look so sweet?) and our Bob 
was a most debonair being in velvet knee breeches. And oh, the perfection of their 
court-slim pages in white, a crown bearer, a royal jester, Greek maidens to glide 
over the dewy green, and a Maypole dance for our delight. 

And the memories of that short-cake! Could Heaven be more nearly 
perfect ? 




Junior-Freshman Wedding, 1922 

The Freshman Class 

thankfully announce the marriage of their daughter 



Monsieur 1923 

on Saturday, the third of December 

nineteen hundred and twenty-two 

at three o'clock in the afternoon 

in the well-known Refectory 

Boston, Massachusetts 

The above announcement called attention to one of the most attractive wed- 
dings ever held in this particular part of Boston; society people attended the func- 
tion in great herds. The dapper little groom, in spite of being a good two feet shorter 
than his roseate bride, managed to carry off his part of the ceremony with great 
aplomb. After the Great Step had been (more or less) successfully taken, the pair 
jumped off in a Ford for their honeymoon, which was spent blissfully and luxuriously 
on the blossoming banks of Jamaica Pond. 





The morning dawned dark and exceedingly cold, 
But our spirits were all bright and gay. 

And, lured by our laughter, the sun soon came out 
And stayed out to watch us all day. 

Each Junior protectingly grasped by the hand 
Her Senior, quite crushed and subdued. 

In the other hand, mixed up with money and coats, 
She clutched at odd boxes of food. 

Arrived at Nantasket, we made for the beach 

Ate hot-dogs, and olives, and cake, 
And coffee, and doughnuts, and cookies, and fruit, 

And now and then sand — by mistake. 

A few of us, called by the surging wet waves, 
Ventured in them as far as our knees; 

While fewer still languidly swam 'midst the ice, 
Pretending that they didn't freeze. 




Then to Paragon Park the gay picnickers went 
Where the Juniors soon lost their spare cash, 

And the Seniors all lost their (assumed) dignity. 
And indulged in amusements quite rash. 

We "wiggled" and "woggled" and chuted the chutes. 

Then looked in the mirrors a lot, 
Where Ruth Leavitt looked so incredibly thin, 

And Henderika so cunningly short. 

All too soon did the time for departure arrive, 
On the boat we made merry once more, 

When parts of the Mic show were given again, 
And Charlotte Hill's song made us roar. 

Sun-burnt and wind-blown, we reached the Dorms, 

A weary and penniless crew! 
The Juniors all had a most slam-gorgeous time, 

And we hope that the Seniors did, too! 

They did 

! I I 




Senior Housewarming 

SURE, pigs is pigs", said Mrs. Wiggs, and she'd say, "kids is kids" if she could 
have peeked in on that mob of "dignified" Seniors who cavorted thru three 
hours of grandfun, doughnuts, cider, and lollypopsat Senior Housewarming 'way back 
in September. That night will ever be remembered, for the sporting blood of '23 
ran hot and furiously. Races were run in stocking feet, and everyone, regardless 
of past, present, or future dignity, tumbled carelessly about — using no discretion 
in picking up portions of the Refectory floor. Irene McKenzie directed the affair, 
with the result that no one felt for an instant that the House was not being thor- 
oughly warmed with mirth and good spirits. (Spirits?? Oh no — only cider, very 
soft cider) . Irene was assisted by real dignity in the shape and expression of Laura 
Maclntyre, who literally split sides with her impersonation of Miss Stites. Gert 
Wonson was all efficiency in giving a model practice on the key board a. la Miss 
Craig, and who would have failed to guess later that Gert, with her concantenation 
of fortuitous circumstances superinduced by a succession of unparalleled coin- 
cidences, was other than our friend Mr. Coll ester? Helen Goodell ended the mis- 
cellaneous entertainment of the evening with a few prophecies which both surprised 
and pleased, and yet annoyed — for oh, too true were them woids of hers! 

And goodness gracious how sticketh to us inside and out the memory of that 
candy we endeavored to pulleth! So also shall sticketh the memory of Senior 
Housewarming entire! 





Full of good cheer was the houge manor hall 
Where gatheryd lords, ladyes, and peasantry- 
To make merrie Christmas tyde. 


The carollers chanted full mony a lay, 
Saint George soon the great, laidly dragon did slay 
To make merrie Christmas tyde. 

Bedecked with bay and rosemary sweet 
Is borne by ye page the boar's head; 'Tis meet 
To make merrie Christmas tyde. 




Student Government Party, 1 922 

THERE is a thrill to every Student Government party, but the biggest thrill 
comes at the end of Junior year. We realize then for the first time that ours 
is the responsibility for the coming year; that what we, as a class, do with this 
responsibility, will influence the life and spirit of the whole college. Do you re- 
member how excited we felt when, one by one, our classmates went forward to 
receive the bouquets — those bouquets which signify the transferring of the most 
important offices from the Senior to the Junior class? Do you remember the gen- 
eral rush and confusion which followed .... the congratulations, the rejoicing, 
the stampede for the traditional lobster salad and ice-cream ? (Who was it remarked 
that we acted like starving barbarians?) And can you ever forget the step-singing 
that followed . . . the last step-singing of the year at which all four classes were 
present . . . and that queer sorry-yet-thrilled feeling you had when the Seniors 
marched out singing Alma Mater? 





When the star-lit evening shadows 
And the spring-time days draw near, 
You can hear the classes singing 
By the steps they hold so dear. 
Oh the songs that we remember 
Are the songs that have been made, 
Just for us to sing together 
'Neath the vine-clad colonade. 

When the Riverway is changing, 
With sun-set colors bright, 
And the elm tree leaves, aquiver, 
Peer down from lofty height, 
You can hear the classes singing, 
By the steps they hold so dear, 
The songs that live forever 
In our hearts from year to year. 

Thru the fall and winter months of the school year, the South Hall Steps 
'"neath the vine-clad colonade," are, to the most imaginative eyes, mere steps. 
On warm fall days, they afford as good a place as any other for pausing, after meals, 
to gossip in the sunshine. On icy wintry mornings, they mean just one more ob- 
stacle in the race against the "no breakfast" sign. 

But as the days speed on towards the time when still another class shall bid 
them farewell forever, these same steps take on a magic meaning. "As the spring- 
time days draw near," the thought of step-singing makes spring itself seem sweeter. 
And when the singing-season is finally on us, we look forward each week to Thursday 
twilights. The singing together of songs, new and old, merry and serious, seems 
to bring us closer to one another in music's magic unity. 

It is a sweet picture for us to carry with us always in our hearts. It has a sweet 
accompanying echo to sound forever in our ears. The qaudrangular formation of 
the classes, with the song leaders in the square. The Seniors massed on the steps, 
white collars relieving the blackness of their gowns against the darkening sky. 
The songs of each class, singing to each other. The Seniors marching down from 
their steps, away— the words of Alma Mater's song upon their lips.

Junior Prom 

April 28, 1922 

THERE were Juniors all gaily apparelled in dresses of every known shade, 
There were men by the dozens and fifties, all stiffly and blackly arrayed, 
There were orchestras on right hand and left hand, supplying the best music yet, 
Yes, all these were ours on our Prom night — will '23 ever forget? 

There were ushers, white clad and solicitous, hovering humbly around, 
There were Seniors, for once frankly envious, keeping well hidden in the back- 
There were ices extremely attractive, and punch exceedingly wet, 
Yes, all these were ours on our Prom night — will '23 ever forget? 

Jap lanterns out on the campus, 
And Anne Driscoll's big, yellow moon,

Now perhaps you'll think it foolish 
To waste your time on this 

But remember, in the "staidest" life 
Fun never goes amiss, 

And he who joineth smiles with tears 
Enjoys the height of bliss. 

And please don't be offended 

If at you we've poked some mirth. 

(If there were none to laugh at 
Of laughs we'd have a dearth, 

And laughter's not unkind 

When we realize your true worth.) 

So read our Microchaos 

With a mind prepared for fun ; 

We know that high-brow verses, 
Clever prose bits, it has none, 

Yet if it causes you to smile 
Our guerdon we have won.

THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1923 


Between the morn and the even 

When the profs are beginning to glower 

Comes a pause in the college brain-work 
Which is known as the lunch-room hour. 

Anon are heard in the hallways 
The clatter and pounding of feet, 

The sound of doors being opened, 
And of voices, more shrill than sweet. 

Then in a moment you see them 
Descending the basement stair, 

Starved Juniors and famished Freshmen, 
And Sophs with a hungry air. 

Much whispering and much shouting, 
And you see by the glint in their eyes 

They are plotting and planning together 
To take the lunch-room by surprise. 

A sudden raid from the stairway, 

A sudden rush from the hall, 
By all the doors and entrances 

They mob the basement small. 

They climb all over the counters, 

O'er the arms and backs of the chairs, 

The}' throw their books on the tables, 
They act like hungry bears. 

Do you think, oh wild-eyed robbers, 
Because you have reached the hall, 

That the grave and dignified proctor 
Is not a match for you all? 

She will hold you fast in the bread line 

And will not let you depart, 
But will put you down at the very end, 

And laugh in her stony heart. 

And there she will keep you ten minutes, 
Yea, ten minutes and even more, 

'Til your ardor and courage shall crumble, 
And you fall in a faint to the floor. 

S.H.S. -'

THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1923 


'Twas the night before Xams, and all through the house 

Not a creature was stirring, — centipede, rat, or mouse. 

The inmates were all lying prone on their beds 

With coldly drenched bureau scarfs wrapped 'round their heads 

While scattered about them, like leaves in the wind, 

Were all the notes, papers, and books they could find. 

The books look suspiciously new and unused, 

As if kept 'til Xam time 'fore being perused. 

And Sophs in their bath-robes, and Seniors sans caps 

Had just settled themselves 'midst note-books and maps, 

When out in the hall there arose such a clatter 

The proctor rushed out to see what was the matter. 

A streaming haired Junior, whose A's were her boast, 

Was crying, "I want some creamed schisms on toast." 

Soon the ambulance came and took her away, 

And once again stillness and quiet held sway. 

Then a strange, subtle fragrance, like strong coffee fumes 
Pervaded the house, and drew girls from their rooms. 
Cne by one they emerged and reeled down the hall 
Where the scent of the coffee lured them, one and all. 
And some were ink-spattered, and acted quite dazed, 
And some were exuberant, and some were half crazed. 
And they sat about drinking coffee, piping hot, 
And giggling and laughing — at what they knew not. 

At four in the morning the watchman walked by, 

And this strangest of spectacles met his sharp eye : 

Grotesquely — 'mong cups and a huge coffee pot, 

Lay, sleeping and snoring, the whole weary lot. 

While grasped in their hands they still clutched pen and ink 

As if striving in sleep of their studies to think. 

The watchman looked long at the sight, and he wept, 

Then, giving a nod, down the hallway he crept. 

But he stopped to exclaim, 'ere he strode out of sight, 

"College life may be grand, but these Xams — GOOD-NIGHT. 




"I'm sure you should all take the course in home ec," 

Said Miss Blood, "It will serve you alway. 
If you're married 'twill show you just how to make bread, 

How to earn it if single you stay.'' 

'The library course is the course to pursue," 

Miss Donnelly said forcibly, 
'For you don't have to know the subjects themselves, 

But just where to find them, you see." 

60 miles per 

And six feet at a step, 

Eye-glasses dangling, 

Smiling to himself 

At some unknown joke, 

That's Mr. Sutcliffe. 




Bigness and broadness, 

Much stately bow, 

And much smile, 

Always clutching a yellow envelope 

Full of government notes, 

That's Mr. MacDonald. 

A pleasant smile, 


A great deal of vitality, 

Ever hurrying onward 

Toward a distant goal, 

That's Miss Mesick. 

English tweeds, 


Volley of decisive speech, 

Directness of purpose, 

That's Miss Barbara Murray Howe. 





(With all due apologies to Poe) 

When in class we love the bells, 
Welcome bells! 
What a passion of relief their silver sound foretells! 
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle, 
In the stuffy class-room air 
Where the blackboard's white with powder 
And the teacher shrills, "Speak louder." 
Then what rapture greets their blare ; 
Keeping time, time, time, 
In a great, triumphant rhyme, 
As joyfully we leave the halls where mighty knowledge dwells 
And the bells, bells, bells, bells, 
Bells, bells, bells, 
And the jingling and the jangling of the Simmons College bells 

But we do not love the bells, 
Cruel bells! 
In the early light of morning how their jangling repels! 
How they jingle, jingle, jingle, 
When in bed we snugly lie 
And we hear their ring with groaning, 
The coming day bemoaning, 
And how sorrowfully we sigh ; 
Keeping time, time, time. 
To their leering, gloating rhyme, 
As wearily we don our clothes and leave our narrow cells 
To the bells, bells, bells, bells, 
Bells, bells, bells, 
To the jingling and the jangling of the dormitory bells. 


1923 :: :: :: MICROCHAOS 


Mr. Collester; 

"Eureka! I have just discovered 
Moth holes in the top of my hat, 
But as no one can see but the angels, 
I guess I won't worry 'bout that." 

"Summer furs are still in the fashion," 
Quoth Dr. Goodell in great glee, 

"So I'll wear them on this great occasion 
As they're so becoming to me." 

"Mrs. Varrell hath spared not the moth-balls, 
Said our prof, as he strode down the aisle. 

"But my robe would be holey without them, 
So I'll just have to smell them, and smile." 


Tonight we will have a fire-drill! I know it! My bones tell me so! ! For 
seven days I have waited — hopefully — patiently — expectantly. My shoes have 
stood like sentinels at my bed-side, my coat has been within easy reach, my purse 
with its five valuable nickels has lain beneath my pillow ready to be grasped at the 
first sound of the gong. But my efforts have been for naught and I have grown 
weary of preparedness. Tonight I have laid aside my lessons and settled down 
early for a good night's rest. My shoes are too far under my bed ever to be retriev- 
ed, my coat is hidden in the gloomy depths of my closet, my five nickels have gone 
the way of all filthy lucre, and, what is yet more potent, I have donned my Western 
Electrics — positive proof of the approach of a drill 

The bell! ! I knew it! Once more my faithful bones have failed me not. 
Out into the cold I go. Shall I put out the transom, or shall I shut the light, or 
shall I leave all for the proctor? I shall. It is the safest way. My kimona has 
vanished. I grab my puff and hasten down the four long flights to join the waiting 
group below, my quilt flapping behind me in the winds. I sniff the air as I descend. 
Smoke! Is this reality ? Is this to be the end ? Remorsefully I think of all I have 
left above to smoulder. With heavy heart I recall the shimmering party gown for 
Prom. But my feet move ever downward toward their goal. With one final flap 
of my sails, I reach the door and peer into the living-room in search of shivering 
comrades. Oh bitter blow! Oh cruel fate! How could you play this trick? A 
belated caller bidding good-night before a crackling fire gazes at my ludicrous garb 
and chortles with glee. One gasp, and I hastily retrace my steps, for it is only the 
ten o'clock bell which has rung, hushing all to a calm and sacred silence.

1923 :: :: :: MICROCHAOS 

I, the most insignificant and unimportant of individuals, have a date ! For the 
last two weeks I have thought of little else. I lie awake nights planning about it, 
pondering over it. I decide on every word I shall say, every gesture I shall make. 
I sit before the mirror, glass in hand, posing and primping. Shall I smile gaily or 
be sweetly serious? Shall I be merry, or shall I appear pensive and mysterious? 
It is a difficult question. I look over my meagre wardrobe with discouragement. 
This gown is too sophisticated, and that one too girlish. Perhaps I can borrow one? 
I try, with poor results. I never realized before how fleshy I am ! I try my hair in 
various ways. I curl it, I fluff it, I draw it demurely back. I sleep on electrics, and 
on rags, and on hair pins. I try bangs, doughnuts, and the Psyche twist . . all 
in vain. My hidden beauty remains hidden. 

The day draws near. I grow worn and nervous. I spend my last pennies for 
a marcel. I bake my face in clay, and lose part of it. THE DAY arrives. I have 
THE date. I look my best (so I fondly hope), I act my part. I am thrilled and 
excited. IT is soon over. 

I should rest easy now, but no, I cannot! I am still distraught and worried. 
What will the result be ? Did I make a good impression ? Did I look as lovely as 
possible? A week passes. I despair. Two weeks pass. Hope leaves me. THEN, 
one morning I receive an envelope. It is a large manilla envelope. I open it with 
trembling hands. My friends crowd 'round me. I hesitate. Gathering courage, 
I pull out the contents. I gaze long at the sheet before me. I swoon with relief. 

Conductor to Miss Howe (who is in charge of twenty-eight to-be-librarians) : 
"Are you thirty?" 

Miss Howe (frigidly): "No, twenty-nine." 

Library Instructor: "What is the scope of this book?" 
McMoxley: "It contains the people who are both living and dead." 

Instructor: "And to what account did you charge Laundry?" 
Senior (all in good faith): "To Maintenance of Real Estate." 

Instructor (impressively) : "Ink-pads are published by 

Anne Adams (trying to impress a Harvard youth): "In the secretarial course 
it takes us four years to learn how to be a typewriter!"

What happened 



This question is best answered 

in the columns 

of the 
























Witt isnmmonjS Calendar 

-Registration — questions — babel; Seniors wear their caps awry; 

Juniors hunt elusive Freshmen; Sophs, sophisticated, sigh. 
-Freshmen flock to the Refectory, rules and speeches there to hear. 

Are introduced to our Dorm Council, that body of respect and fear. 
-Upper classmen take the Freshies to the first dance of the year. 

They find that even without men-folks, dances may be full of cheer. 
-Sloaty, tired of climbing stair-ways, stops at three instead of four. 

Marcia, sound in peaceful slumber, is rudely wakened from her snore. 
-In the p. m. many gather for a party in the hall, 

Given by the Student Government; "a fine time was enjoyed by all." 

In the eve., to warm the Refectory, gather many Seniors stern. 

(If you do but glance at Sun Dial, full particulars you'll learn.) 
-Occasion ne'er to be forgotten! No one to government was late; 

Bob Lynch, from a youthful flapper, now is changed to woman's state. 
-Mr. Clive, well known to Simmons, speaks at our Dramatic, tea. 

MIC Show comes off in the evening, upsetting the Refectory. 
-Holiday. We all are thankful that Columbus sailed the blue. 

Rich ones spend their money freely, and us poor ones spend it, too.

Luncheon and Tea 

Over the

Oct. 21.— 1926 is married, to bold 1924. 

All the college hopes their future will be full of fun galore. 
Oct. 23. — Rumors of the ghastly ghost walk quite upset our life so tame; 

Juniors stalk about like Sherlocks, clad as for a foot-ball game. 
Oct. 23. — Ghosts (they really are the Sophomores) finally parade around, 

Much relief on part of Juniors, tired now of playing "hound". 
Oct. 31. — Hallowe'en Y. W. party's staged in students' room and gym; 

Pris and Mike show "how he won her"; doughnuts eaten with much vim. 
Nov. 1. — Convocation. Suffering Seniors now are put in choking stocks; 

Hats go slipping, sliding, reeling, as down the aisle the long line walks. 
Nov. 3. — Unforgettable date is this one — Simmons blossoms forth in style; 

The Fashion Show — good music, dancing, models swaying down the aisle. 
Nov. 4. — Moorhead wins the tennis tournament, with Tommy very close behind. 
Nov. 5. — We give a tea for college grads — the grads are very hard to find! 
Nov. 9. — Mr. MacDonald speaks in North Hall, on the mess in the Near East; 

Exits soon are over-crowded — over eighty there at least! 
Nov. 17-18 — Freshmen, Sophs, and haughty Juniors do their best on these two days: 

Dramatic Club presents these classes in three most charming one-act plays. 
Nov. 25. — Sophomores, to show their spirit, a card party for Endowment give. 
Nov. 29. — Much suit-cases crowd the corridors. We start for home — we breathe — we 

Dec. 4. — Tea for the Dramatic members is helpful to dispel the gloom; 

Cast of Jewett's "Beggars Opera" is entertained in students' room.

Dec. 7. — Lords and ladies entertain us in their sumptuous manor hall: 

The boar's head, cider, and plum pudding are enjoyed by one and all. 
Dec. 9. — Supplies of cough-drops, coca-cola, cheese, and coffee are laid in, 

In preparation for exam week, which all too soon is to begin. 
Dec. 11-15. — Gloom unspeakable, furious study, tenseness and much mental strain; 

There's but one bright spot a-gleaming — that we'll soon be home again. 
Jan. 1. — New Year's Day we celebrate by coming back to books and grind. 

Evening finds us rather weary, silent, grim, and low in mind. 
Jan. 3. — On this date is poor Ann Driscoll given one of Fate's hard knocks; 

From our midst she's rudely banished, for bringing from home the chicken-pox.

After the concert there is dancing on our smooth Refectory flour.

An extra squad of mounted policemen is called in to enforce the law.

Heatedly discuss such questions as, "State clubs-yes?" or "State clubs-m

Eight p. m. sees the Refectory fixed up for the Mass. Club dance.

They visit Springfield, Holyoke, Harnp — also the Amherst lads. 
Feb. 8. — On this day before the Big Day, Simmons with the ocean vies, 

Marcelled waves appear, and ripple, dizzily, before our eyes. 
Feb. 9. — Simmons' dorms are quite deserted, the Somerset's the place to be.

-Simmons Glee Club gives its concert, with its usual great success 

That always brings its members and directors happiness. 
-Junior-Alumnae conference beginneth on this day; 

Much alumnae rushing 'round, with Juniors in the way! 
-Senior's show they're growing older, — '25 makes them look slow; 
-Freshies make them all seem forty years of age, or so. 
—Here we have dramatic's week-end, with attendant joy and pain — 

Actors, freed now from rehearsals, wouldn't mind the grind again. 
-Tech Show seats for sale on all sides, — hectic efforts towards this end. 

Prudent folk begin to study; note-books seem not foes, but friends. 
-One last fling before those exams come and crush us all to earth; 

Tech Show gets applause. Of audience — and proceeds — what a dearth! 
-Last academic graves have been dug, — few, we hope, must lie therein. 

"MIC" is banished to the printers; — the Board goes home to bed, —
